Back when the South Platte River Valley was primarily the summer hunting ground of the Oglala Lakota,  a handful of settlers, trappers, and assorted other wanderers would come together to celebrate the bounty of summer and have one last gathering before the cold winter winds would begin to blow.

For over 30 years, the citizens of Ogallala have come together in that tradition to celebrate our colorful past with bands, live entertainment, dancing and a diverse assortment of local talents.  The annual Ogallala Indian Summer Rendezvous is scheduled for Sept. 21-23.
